Value of a Dixie Furniture Bedroom Set?

Value of a Dixie Furniture Bedroom Set? - cabinet with drawers and a hutchThis is the bedroom set I had as a child, my daughter also used it. I was thinking of selling it, but am not sure how or what to ask. Obviously, it's not in perfect shape, but if I were to fix the minor things, is it worth it or do I just sell it on Facebook and get rid of it? It is very solid, quality wood, just have some drawers with loose slides. And it needs a good polish.

You have a few options to sell this set. First, you can list this and sell it as a complete set. Second, you can try and sell it off as pieces. You will need to sell this locally and when you advertise on Facebook it should indicate pick up only. The only way to really determine the value is to look around your own area and see how much people are asking for wood furniture. In some areas, people still buy a lot of this type of furniture and in other areas, it is very hard to sell and the price is so very low. Take a look on Craigslist for your area or search on Facebook for your area. Check out what people are selling and the asking price they want for the items they are selling. Look mostly at wood furniture and see what people are trying to sell it for. This is how you will really determine the value of yours and how much you can get when you sell it locally.


I would check out some dressers to see how much people are asking. It could be as low as $50 or as high as $150. Where my daughter lives she was able to pick up a full bedroom set for around $175 in her area. This included the bed frame, 2 dressers, and a nightstand table. She has recently moved to a new state and was checking out furniture prices there and the set she got for such a good price is almost double where she is living now. So you see the price is regional and how much a person is willing to pay where you live.

You can try and list the full set for around $250-300 to see what happens. You could go higher but I really don't think people have that much money to spend right now in this economy.

Amazing! I bought this same style set for my youngest daughter when she was 16 and that was in the 80's (she is now 56). I think we had every piece they made in this set and although she was a 'tomboy' she loved it.


The reason I liked it was because I did not care for 'French Provincial' and this seemed to only have a 'touch' of that style.
I believe French Provincial is a very common style in the marketplace and seems to be for sale everywhere as it was very popular in the 70s - 90s and downsizing is what is happening now.

I think you could clean up this set and try listing it on any site you're familiar with - Facebook Marketplace, offerup, letgo are popular sites.
Start with a high price - maybe $1200 or more for the set and make it pick up only and best offers considered.
Leave it posted for several weeks and lower the price if no one makes a decent offer. If the set does not sell then you could piece it out but I think it will sell if you
Good (uncluttered) pictures will sell an item quicker than anything else.

There is a lot of confusion between the names Dixie Furniture and Dixie Furniture Company but they are not related in any way.


"History of Dixie Furniture:
Dixie Furniture (the manufacturer) - Founded in 1901 by Henry Link and several others in Lexington, NC. The name has been changed to Lexington Home Brands & they are still in business but no longer sell Dixie furniture.

Dixie Furniture (the manufacturer) is not related to & should not be confused with the Dixie Furniture Company (which are stores that just sell furniture, not make it), located in Charleston, SC. Their first store opened in 1946. Dixie Furniture Stores are located in Charleston, N. Charleston, & Waterboro, SC.
They do NOT carry or sell the Dixie stamped furniture."

Interesting (but long) article on Dixie Furniture history:

When my mom first purchased it in 1979, we had the canopy bed and the double headboard too. Sadly, the canopy bed was given to one of her co-workers when I wanted a more grown up bed. I have no idea where the double headboard ever went!


I plan to clean them and move them to good photo spots before listing, it's just too heavy for me to do alone! That was what got me thinking I should actually look into what it is worth.
Thank you to everyone for the articles, they are a big help! I'm having surgery on my knee this Friday but will begin working on them after. I will post pictures!!!
Thank you again!!!

We wish you the very best with your upcoming surgery but you will have to be very careful for some time after surgery as a good recovery is so important to maybe having no problems with rehab.


This is a beautiful set and good pictures will help get the most money but all in good time - please.

Young people are not into really 'fancy' stuff so much but this particular set is just on the 'pretty' side so I'm hoping it will sell quickly and improve your finances.
You can post back on this thread later and it will show up for everyone to see.
We are blessed and you will have a successful surgery and recovery.

Lovely! If you are on the East coast of the US, you can fetch up to $1000 for the set and it would probably sell as a set. Use terms like shabby chic, cottage style and French Provincial in the ad.

Other parts of the country are hit and miss. Regional values differ and are supply a demand driven. Start high and take best offer.

Thanks for sharing!
